Today is Good Friday for those that celebrate the holiday, but today is also the release day of Xenoblade, making today a “good friday” indeed. Hopefully you are enjoying your NTSC copy of Xenoblade today after a very long wait. Thank you, Nintendo for choosing not to “Passover” this gem of a game. And thanks to GameStop for selling Xenoblade Chronicles in North America.

    WOOOOOO!!!! I just got back from picking it up! I was the first one in my store to do so! 😀 I must also say that I am far from dissapointed with the art book!

  • Just got mine in the mail! The game is awesome! Thanks guys for all the leg work you put in to make this happen! Unfortunately it came with no artbook….

    THIS GAME IS EPIC!!! I got the game this morning around 11:00. I don’t usually even like side quests but Xenoblade’s world is so beautiful and inviting I constantly find myself wandering off into nowhere to hunt and challenge the toughest monsters. I’m about to enter Tephra cave!

  • Just got back from picking it up and I will be spending a large portion of my evening and tomorrow playing it.  Thank you, Nintendo and Operation Rainfall!

  • does anybody know what’s inside the bundle from ShopNintendo? im thinking of buying it there. pls reply

  • Celebration is in order!!! 🙂 Picked up my copy w/ artbook nice & early. It was a tough decision though, since I’m pretty close to the end of Tales of Graces F. My options were to:
    1. Put aside Graces F. 2. Play both – Xenoblade & Graces F (which i never play 2 at once). 3. Or wait to play Xenoblade after Graces F. ‘Twas a tough call, but I decided to finish Grace F first. I’ll be in JRPG heaven for quite a time, either way. 🙂 Then there’s The Last Story. JOYOUS OVERLOAD!!!

  • Thank you so much Nintendo Of America and Operation Rainfall for giving me the opportunity to experience this absolute masterpiece of a game! =D

  • We now all have a new holiday to celebrate 🙂
